2014 Operational report

The Institution has compiled this unique report since 1923 and continues today to bring a compilation of independent “user focus” data for conventional prime mover types, as well as expanding to report on alternative fuels and comparison to alternative prime mover technologies. Prime movers for industrial, marine and rail traction are applications of interest.

Its value depends on the quality of input and we encourage all those interested in the compiled data on a worldwide basis, to  participate.It is not necessary to be a member of the Institution to contribute or to receive a copy of the report.
